    Sorry, I don’t know that one. I know some John Denver, WIllie Nelson and Johnny Cash, but not that one.

    I sing along wih them, too. They wee songs ffrom the old western movie days and when they get to the part where he sings, “Oh I can’t stand hobbles and I can’t stand fences, don’t fence me”in. the kids look confused and ask what’s a hobble
    You had to be there. ?

    King of the Cowboys ROY ROGERS introduces Cole Porter’s brand new western ballad, “DON’T FENCE ME IN” in the 1944 film, “HOLLYWOOD CANTEEN”. He is accompanied by the Sons of the Pioneers.

    The Sons of the Pioneers was an American cowboy singing group founded in 1933 by Leonard Slye (better known by his later screen name Roy Rogers).

    This real country, blue grass music. The kind of music John Denver, WIllie Nelson and Johnny Cash cut their teeth on. (Am I showing my age with that expression?)

    Actually, I had a chance to see those old westerns. One had Roy Rogers singing ‘My Old Kentucky home.’
    Trouble is… there’s a line about how the darkies all were gay…
    (different times.)

    Right, different times. Too bad it would be taken as an insult now when it was intended to be uplifting.

    Like the look of the face of ‘the wife’—like ‘am I going to have to have him committed soon’ ?

    “My Old Kentucky Home” was written by Stephen Foster, circa 1852. At that time the meaning of “gay” was happy.

    There is something about a great western ballad written by a gay Broadway show tunes writer being sung by a Jewish cowboy actor.

    Those ads that keep pushing in on the left are very annoying. Don’t you have enough ads on the page already?

    Oh, I loved the Westerms! Were those what they called Horse Operas? Every hero had his funny side-kick and a pretty lady to sing to at the end. Although there were scary moments with those,cranky, uh, Native Americans, you knew the white hats were going to survive. You walked out of the cool theater into the blazing hot summer heat and daylight blinded you for a few, but you were HAPPY and still had those songs running through your head. the rest of the day. Post-war 40’s, sigh…

    I know, but the ‘darkies’ part would be offensive now.
